A Central Dance Day is an opportunity for young dancers from 12 to 16 years to learn more about life in full-time dance training.
Dance Days are a series of taster workshops held around the UK. Participants take part in a ballet and contemporary class led by Central School of Ballet Senior School tutors. The days are designed to encourage and inspire your current dance training.
The First Step
Our workshops can also give a taste of Central auditions and classes. Many Central students have their first experience of our unique atmosphere and teaching methods at Dance Days.
Ask The Experts
The workshops include time for you to ask questions, and both your parents and your dance teachers are welcome to watch and take part in discussions.
